Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't
select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---
Title: The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork
I open my eyes when I hear my name.
I'm lying down. A white bed. To my left is a window. Pale-blue sky. To my right a face. The same lady from last night. Underneath her white coat, I see a shiny green dress.
"I'm sorry we lost touch." There's silence on the line. I hear Becca breathe. Maybe she is thinking of all my calls she didn't answer. Then, "No one told me anything. I didn't even know you quit debate, for God's sake."
Comments: I haven't started this book yet, but I have it queued on my iPod with the audiobook so I will start it as soon as I'm done with my current audiobook. I've read three other books by this author and I really appreciate how he ethically deals with tough subjects. The topic of this book is mental illness and teen suicide.
